LCS Newsletter - (2017) - Introduction To Taiwan's Mega Infrastructure Program
Taiwan Government has recently budgeted NT$420 billion for the “Forward-Looking Infrastructure Program” for the next 4 years. As local suppliers are unable to independently complete all aspects of the projects (such as mass transit, energy and water), there are plenty of the opportunities for foreign contractors to take roles during the upcoming implementation of the Program. We have published a series of the Newsletters for the Program. Please click our home page to read the Project Newsletter.
LCS' infrastructure practice team is experienced in representing both the government and private sectors, including international contractors, and has been involved in various major projects in Taiwan.  Services include negotiation of all types of legal and bidding documents, project management and consultation, project finance and dispute resolutions.  Our team is especially apt at tailoring the overall project strategies to fit our clients' specific needs, and is equipped with both the expertise and practical experience in BOT and other infrastructure projects.  Recently, in response to the Taiwanese government's proposed “Forward-Looking Infrastructure Program”, we have formed a special project team to provide the most efficient and effective legal services.
